How Does Tixel® Work?
Using a handheld device with a medical-grade titanium tip, Tixel® uses Thermo-Mechanical Action (TMA®). The tip uses tiny titanium cones heated to over 400 degrees Fahrenheit. These create small areas of thermal injury surrounded by healthy skin. This process stimulates the production of new, healthy skin cells. It also initiates collagen production in deeper layers of the skin.
What are the Benefits of Tixel® Treatments?
The use of thermo-mechanical energy gives Tixel® some advantages over energy-based treatments like lasers. Reasons to choose Tixel® for skin rejuvenation include:
Not Just for the Face
Along with the face, you can have Tixel® treatment on your chest, neck, arms, or almost any other area. While many people assume skin resurfacing is only for the face, many parts of your body can also benefit.
Little to No Downtime
Unlike ablative lasers like CO2, you will have little to no downtime and can now achieve the same results in just a few sessions. This first of its kind treatment is a breakthrough for those who wish to achieve dramatic rejuvenation, but can’t peel for a week or two.
Your skincare expert can target the intensity of your Tixel® treatment to address your skin concerns. Hyperpigmentation and sun damage may respond to a less intensive resurfacing than lines, wrinkles, and acne scars. We can customize the number and intensity of treatments to suit your needs and lifestyle.
Tixel® has the advantage of improving both the surface of the skin and the underlying structure. By boosting collagen production, Tixel® improves your skin over the following weeks and months to continue to look smoother and more even.
